Down Town Live is a live album of the Welsh psychedelic/progressive rock band Man. The album was recorded at the Downtown Blues Club in Hamburg on 23 May 2001. According to the manband-archive, the recording was originally not intended for the general public. But after several months Hans-Werner Altrichter persuaded the band that "It was great music, and deserved its place in the pantheon of the performing arts", so the album was released on 7 November 2002. [2] The recording does not feature the full band line-up at that time, as keyboard player, Gareth Llewelyn Thorrington, had been held up at the airport because of a bomb scare.[3]
